    Just saw a set of the Alfred Hitchcock Criterion movies (5) for $110, good deal or no?

    Criterion MSRP is at least $40 each, so that's $200. Plus several of the Hitchcock titles are out of print. So I'd say it's probably a good deal.

    There are only five Hitchcock titles listed at Criterion, so I assume you're getting them all. The last three listed are out of print:

    -The 39 Steps
    -The Lady Vanishes
    -Notorious (Out of Print)
    -Rebecca (Out of Print)
    -Spellbound (Out of Print)

    You are correct sir; just another excuse to buy some movies.

    Yeah, it's a great set, a perfect compliment to the Hitchcock Collection box sets.

    Wow, the price of this set has really gone up. The cheapest price found via www.dvdpricesearch.com was $97 from the Canadian site DVD Box Office (never ordered from them before). Every other site was more than the $110 you found, Bryan. I paid $82 for the set when it first came out. It must be because some of the titles are out of print.

    It's a great collection of films, and the transfers are very good.
